Back to School High School grads reveal their choices for college Chicago-bound

Katie Brunner, who recently graduated from Marymount High School, applied to a long list of schools, including the University of Iowa, Manhattanville, Evergreen State, Ithaca, Sarah Lawrence and Columbia colleges as well as School of the Art Institute of Chicago and DePaul University. In the end, she decided on DePaul because of its excel-

lent English program and the opportunities Chicago could

offer her in the writing field. The daughter of Ann and Jeff Brunner, Windsor Square, Katie says she’s excited to be leaving home to build her own life. “I’ve had 18 years of learning how to ‘make good choices’ and ‘always be prepared’ from the best parents I could ask for,” she said. “I’m ready for whatever life has to throw at me.” Having already gone through the process of send-

ing their older daughter off to college, Katie thinks “they’re more than ready to let me go.” Still, she worries about one thing. “I wonder how they’ll survive without me telling them how to run every machine in the house. My mother used to threaten not to send me to college because she didn’t know how to record a TV show without me showing her the big orange ’R’ on the remote,” she laughed. Her older sister, Sarah, will be fine, however. “It won’t be too hard to lure her to visit me with some good ol’ Chicago deep-dish pizza and the chance to see her little sister living the freshmen college student I-have-no-moneyand-eat-mac-n-cheese-everynight life.” ***

Needs winter clothes

Marlborough graduate Alex Tator applied to a number of colleges. But in the end, the choice was simple. “I fell in love with Bentley University after visiting the campus in the fall,” said the daughter of Steve Tator and Dorothy Schouten, Windsor Square. “I went in October and it was just beautiful.” Bentley is located 20 minutes outside of Boston, which means California girl Alex will have to go shopping for winter clothes. “It’s exciting. I’ve lived here my whole life, I know the people and the neighborhood. But it’s just really exciting to be moving into this new stage of my life,” she said. An added bonus is that Alex, who was on the varsity team at Marlborough, will get to be on Bentley’s volleyball team. “I plan to major in business,

ple were so cool. It is a perfect fit.” With her departure to the East Coast looming, Alex says her parents are doing pretty well. “The cool thing is they’re planning to make a bunch of trips to come and see me play volleyball.”

Programs gain from Coke grants Several L.A. agencies are the recipients of The CocaCola Company’s $2 million in grants awarded to 20 organizations across the country.

By Laura Eversz The nearly 500 students at Temple Israel of Hollywood (TIOH) will begin the school year in a completely rebuilt, state-of-the-art education center on the Hollywood Blvd. campus. The project is the work of KoningEizenberg Architects. The facility, home to both the TIOH religious and day schools, features renovated and reconfigured classrooms and administrative offices. Its fully integrated technology infrastructure has increased fiber optic service capacity, a dedicated wireless computer networking system, an iPadbased library platform and interactive “smart” whiteboards in the classrooms. The design was inspired by the elements and colors of nature, with increased natural light, optimized learning and adult space, a new “learning alcove” for study sessions, a faculty resource center and a floor-to-ceiling window wall. “These new learning spaces will serve the large, diverse and growing populations of students in our various programs—from kindergarten to

welcoming entry to the Day School. “In addition to our new technology hardware and software, we have developed an entirely reconceived curriculum and staff training on the use of technology to transform education,” added Lewin.

Back to School St. James’ ministry ESTA offers theatre arts for kids ma. Director Doña Oxford said, “the inspiration for the program was born from my passion for the arts, my belief that education is freedom, and my desire for a more compassionate, thoughtful and kinder world.” Arts programs are usually the first thing cut in schools creating an education devoid of structured outlets for selfexpression and creativity, she

added. “I believe that we need more free-thinkers in the world and want to offer a safe space for children where they can expand and explore their creative selves.” There are no competitions, finales or performances. “Our sole mission is to provide children with a sense of individual worth and dignity through the discovery and fulfillment of their own visions,” said Oxford.

The program incorporates movement, voice, relaxation, improvisation and acting exercises led by a professional staff of teachers. The fall semester runs from Sat., Sept. 17 through Sat., Nov. 19; deadline for enrollment is Tues., Sept. 13. Cost for the 10-week semester is $360. Tuition assistance is available for low-income students. For more information, call 213-0388-3417 ext. 105 or go to www.thestaschool.com

By Lauren Boylston Annabella Hoge 5th Grade We are so excited to be bringing you the news from Larchmont Charter School throughout the school year.  Over summer break, our students went on vacations, visited friends and family and went to exciting camps.    Some students even helped fix up our school! We are looking forward to some improvements at both our middle school and elementary school campuses.    At our elementary school (K-5), we are relocating and reorganizing our art room and music room.  We have added an outdoor classroom, shade structures and skylights over our eating areas.  We are also adding outdoor cubbies for all of the students.   At our middle school campus (6-8), we are creating a new outdoor space complete with trees, benches and even a garden.  Our middle school is really growing this year—adding an additional 40 students and offering new classes such as Latin, yoga, choir and drama.  We can't wait to kick off our 2011-2012 school year!

Fifth grader Hazel Drymon traveled to Washington, D.C. and toured the White House. She also saw Gabrielle Giffords vote on the debt ceiling. This was the first time the congresswoman had been back in Congress since being shot earlier this year. I worked with endangered and exotic wild animals like a bobcat/ lynx hybrid, African serval, toucan, and tegus at the Eco Station. Most of these animals were illegally smuggled into the country or abused and neglected. It’s very difficult to care for these kinds of animals so it’s best not to get them in the first place.

The student body breakdown is 32 percent Korean, 40 percent Latino, and 14 percent each African-American and Caucasian. Originally built for 400 students, the campus is now

home to 2,000 students in grades sixth through eighth. Within this population are distinctive programs including special education, gifted magnet, ESL and school for advanced studies. The school is located within the Historical Preservation Overlay Zone of Hancock Park, and is registered as a Historical Structure with the L.A. Conservancy.

'Tomorrow’s Future’ center aims at aiding Hollywood youth The Hollywood Police Station’s new youth mentoring center opened in August at 5824 Santa Monica Blvd. Called “Tomorrow’s Future,” it provides programs, speakers, bi-lingual tutors as well as computers and Internet access for local youngsters and their families. The goal of Tomorrow’s Future is to keep youth from joining street gangs by provid-

ing programs and interacting with the police, said LAPD Hollywood Division Capt. Beatrice Girmala. Volunteers who grew up in PAL (Police Athletic League) in Hollywood are among volunteers who will mentor the youngsters. Supporters of the new center are members of the Hollywood Police Support Association and Hollywood PAL.

Our Center is dedicated to providing quality infant and toddler care for children 6 weeks to 2 years of age. Recognizing the need for children to explore and grow at their own pace, the Center’s environment encourages movement and exploration. Our caregivers are educated, experienced and well trained in child development and RIE philosophy. Children with special needs are welcome.
